Hello everyone! Whew, I have had a busy March! I hope everyone is doing well and I am glad to be back at it again making some content for all of you. Having been out of Standard this last month hasn’t had a huge impact as we are still patiently awaiting War of the Spark to shake things up. I took to browsing for some new interesting lists and saw most everything looked how I left it. I did, however, find this fun Grixis Mid-range deck and decided to take that for a spin!
The deck, like any good mid-range deck, looks to control the game with a nice mix of strong removal and value creatures. It also has a Surveil sub-theme that abuses the recursion of Disinformation Campaign to generate card advantage. Looking to live the dream of flipping a Nicol Bolas, the Ravager or surprising opponents with a mid combat Dream Eater, this deck certainly has some powerful card choices. Let’s take a look at the list and jump into some matches!
Having had some poor luck with mid-range style decks in best of one, I decided this week we would play best of three matches. I enjoyed getting back to some classic magic with side board options. For decks that have a healthy mix of control elements and creature beat downs, the option to sway your deck one way or the other really makes a difference in best of three.
We faced a couple interested brews this week. We saw some cool cards and interactions and I felt the matches did a good job of showcasing how this deck is looking to operate. Aside from The Eldest Reborn and Dream Eater making our curve a bit too high, I don’t think I would make many changes.
I am excited to see how this deck performs as I make my way up the best of three ranks. Stop by twitch.tv/DCMDame to check out more Grixis action.
